These are a few of my favourite things



I received the cutest phone case by Fifi Lapin from the wonderful Iconemesis* I want every single iphone case on their website, especially all the Fifi Lapin ones. I chose this one as it was two of my favourite things combined - bunnies and tea! I definitely will be buying more cases from Iconemesis, i have a bit of an iphone case addiction..



Who doesn't love Mulberry. That isn't even a question, we all know everyone does, even if it does take a year to save for one of their bags! Here is our bayswater bag - i say "our" as it's actually my sisters, but i have now claimed it as both of ours..sorry phoebe! i can't express how much i also want to own the Del Rey in every colour, one day grace one day.



Little daily reminders. I feel no matter how tough life might be treating you, you need to get up and face the day with as much sass as possible. Through all the crappy times everyone may be going through always remember, no matter what, you will always have someone who will help you get through anything. Family for me is what is most important, I wouldn't be anywhere without them and i wouldn't mind having nothing as long as i had them. So please, how ever bad things may be, or how ever bad things may get, remember the good things in your life and remember to smile.

How to: Glamour hair waves - inspired by megan fox




I'm obsessed with big hair and glamour waves and combining rollers with a barrel curler gives the best volume you need for this hair-do. The brilliant thing about these rollers is that they heat up in 90 seconds and curl in 5 minutes rather than having to have them in your hair for an hour, so fab if you're in a rush! I saw this picture of Megan Fox ages ago and NEEDED to do a tutorial on it. So this is how i did it.

1). Section your hair in the crown section and separate. Grab the heated rollers and roll the roller down your hair and clip. I did three working backwards down the crown of my hair.

2). Now section the sides of your hair, starting from the front, vertically roll the hair around the roller and clip using the clips provided. Do that on both sides, mine consisted of three on each side and three at the top of my head.

3). Using the barrel curler, wrap your hair around the curler, holding for thirty seconds and release the hair into your hand holding the curl.

4). Wrap the curl up inside itself and bobby pin the hair - this keeps the curl in place for longer. Continue that on the rest of the hair that's left.

5). Keep the hair in the rollers and pin curls for as long as you like, i kept mine in for 10 minutes and sprayed. This is the point you will look like a HOT MESS!! Now start releasing the rollers and curls - DONT GET IT STUCK IN THE ROLLER LIKE ME - error.

6). Once all the curls are out, brush the shinanigans out of your hair, and wrap them together, spray with hair spray and you're good to go!

Keeping it Co-Ord







i'm absolutely appalling at getting my outfit posts up at the best of times, but as my drafts deleted all my posts it's even worse! but anyway, it's sorted so here i am back in action!

My blog is going to end up being just co-ords soon, i'm obsessed! If only i had the figure for them i'd wear them all the time. here is my most favourite co-ord i've ever seen, by the absolute babes at rare london, it fits like a glove and is super comfy too. I'm in love with anything white and lacy so this is right up my street. here's the type of outfit i will be wearing on mine and my boyfriends 1 year anniversary. This scuba dusty pink coat is perfect and super versatile, and not heavy at all, not only that pastels are in for A/w so this is the one! Pairing pink and white is now officially my favourite pairing, i feel like a wonderful ice-cream.

Going Co-ord crazy



We're all going a little coordination crazy atm, whether it's a midi skirt teamed with a matching crop top, or shorts with a matching tee, the co-ord is still going strong! As the trend is here to stay this autumn, here's a collect of my favourite types of co-ords and patterns to boot. I'm loving cut out details at the moment so these white ones are my favourites. Especially the ones with white pearl embellishments over the top of the material (heart eyes!). 





You can view my favourite Co-ords here from Ark Clothing to see these ones in action.

Khloe Kardashian hair inspired tutorial - half up do







i'm terribly sorry for the awful quality of my gifs! I am in dyer need of a hd camera but as i cannot afford one i will stick with my laptop. my iphone may be better quality so i might try that in future. Anyhoo onto the tutorial, i've been doing this hairstyle inspired by Khloe Kardashian ever since i saw her rocking it on her instagram, so i thought i'd do a wee tut on how to do it just incase others were wondering. 

Starting from left to right:
1). Start by sectioning your hair off - either in two to three sections depending on how thick your hair is. Then take a barrel curler and curl each section one by one.


2). continue to curl each section, holding in place for 20-30 seconds then releasing, don't worry if they're not neat or too tight, you will brush them out soon!

3). Once you've curled all your hair, with your fingers push back from the front until you get a 80s mullet type look. Once done use your tumbs to section off where you'd like the up-do to be, smoothing with hands as you go.

4).  use a hair tie to tie your hair in place, making it as tight or as loose as you want. Pull bits out of the front for a messier, less sleek look.

5)+6). Lastly spray your hair with hairspray then take a paddle brush and brush out the curls so they look sleek and smooth

Going Maxi with Missguided



i'm clearly obsessed by maxi dresses recently so i jumped at the chance to own another one.  i love this maxi dress by missguided as you can dress it up or down which makes it so easy to work with. adding a clutch and heels with the fab plunging neckline makes you ready to go out asap! to dress it down i'd pair the dress with flat sandals and a large tote bag.

French Connection Summer Maxi Dress




Maxi dress: French connection* / Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

I'm obsessed by maxi dresses recently, i get like this when ever the weather heats up! So when i saw this red/orange maxi on the french connection site i knew i needed it in my summer wardrobe. The best thing about maxi dresses is they hide all my lumps and bumps so no one needs to see my love handles or saddle bags while they're walking down the street haha. I've been looking for a dress like this for about a year and i finally own one! WAHOOOOO! Jumpsuits and maxi dresses will see me through this summer, what do you prefer wearing when the weather gets hawtttt?
